Hunter Biden’s ex-stripper mistress asked a judge last week to arrest him for failing to comply with court orders in his child support case, a “hallmark Biden litigation tactic,” according to the woman’s lawyer.
According to Fox News, Lunden Roberts, who has a 4-year-old daughter with Biden, asked the court to take that action in a Thursday filing to enforce the court’s requirement that he disclose his income and assets. Biden is attempting to reduce the case’s $20,000 monthly child support obligation, which Roberts claims Biden has been avoiding.
“She seeks civil contempt of incarceration until such time as the defendant fully answers discovery and to be paid for her attorney’s fees and costs, which are paid from her child support payments and thereby a loss to the child in this case,” her lawyer argued Thursday, according to the court filing. “Specifically, the plaintiff seeks $20,000 to compensate for the discovery goose chases, hounding of the defendant, and need to constantly seek the court’s intervention.”
Roberts has also requested that their daughter’s surname be changed to Biden so that she can benefit from the prestigious family name.
“Either the plaintiff can get discovery to prove that she is entitled to a name change and the continued support of her child that the defendant disowns, or the defendant can avoid it all by playing hide the ball,” Roberts’ lawyer wrote in a filing last week. “The court should take some action that makes the defendant a believer in the rule of law.”
Biden has refused to provide all of the case’s discovery information. This postponed Roberts’ attempts to call his business associates as expert witnesses in the case.
“[P]laying games with discovery is a hallmark Biden litigation tactic,” Roberts’ lawyer wrote. “Mr. Biden does not want to disclose his income and assets, says that he is somewhat financially destitute, while he lives on a mountain overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, has Secret Service protection, and enjoys his time abroad.”
Biden has rejected the plaintiff’s argument that he is a privileged member of the president’s family. He claimed he only flew on Air Force One once and “stayed on a cot in his dad’s room in Dublin” because of his unstable financial situation. He also claimed he had his Porsche repossessed.
According to Roberts’ lawyer, Biden’s tactics are consistent with his troubled history. “[T]his sounds eerily the same as 2016 when Mr. Biden ran his family finances to the ground, took money from foreign ‘deal(s),’ failure to provide clearly discoverable information… and lived the good life with his brother’s widow a stone’s throw away from Sunset Boulevard,” he wrote.
